with the president's plan right now? >> harry reid, joe manchin from west virginia, bob casey from pennsylvania. the aim for the president now is to find these n.r.a.-backed democrats and squeeze them and put the pressure on and say, are you uncomfortable when i bring little children up here to talk about schoolplace shootings? i can do it in your state or where you live and i can come and keep the pressure on you, until you agree to do some kind of a gun ban and get on board. remember this, megyn, you hit it right on the head, if the president can't get legislation out of the senate, he can't begin to apply pressure on the house. he can talk about it, but until the senate can actually move legislation, it's not going to work, so somebody like joe manchin who we first met on the national scene shooting with a deer rifle, the president's cap and trade bill back in 2010, if he can't get guys like that to sign up and get on board, nothing will happen. i bet he'll come with a pretty heavy hand. >> megyn: he's a west virginia guy, joe manchin and you're a west virginia guy. west virginia is not goin
